as the world looks for ways to respond to russia's military intervention in ukraine. secretary of state, john kerry, face to face with sergei lavrov. they are both in paris for talks that have been planned before the russian takeover. the talks are so much more urgent. perhaps the most important test yet as to whether dialogue can be used to resolve the crisis in ukraine. in some ways, there have been setbacks. if the us and eu impose sanctions on russia, washington is looking at a series of punitive steps including economic and diplomatic sanctions designed to isolate moscow. no sign either side is backing down from a somewhat polite standoff between russian and ukrainian troops. polite so far. these troops are all armed and the russian forces do remain in effect tiff control of the crimean peninsula. we are covering all the ankles f angles at this hour. elise labott joins us and michael holmes and our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto, joins us from washington. >>> first, elise, i want to speak with you. i understand john kerry has already had a brief meeting with the russi
to a bigger widening of the conflict. the main objective of all sides, united states, ukraine, russia, should be to de-escalate this crisis and the key is going to be getting the ukrainian government in kiev, talking to the russians, talking to the crimean part of the country to diffuse the crisis. that's the most important success. standing behind ukraine, package of assistance, whirnd them, but also saying to the ukrainian government, the kiev government, opponent be careful. let's de-escalate -- let's defuse the crisis and let's not provoke the russians or the crimeans. >> memories are rich here as i'm sure you know. the conflict that happened in georgia. vladimir putin or the russians went in and ended up tiptoeing out of there and regained some territory. if that sort of thing were to happen here, there is month indication ukraine will be able to get that crimea at my point. if that's the case and ukraine loses crimea to the russians, that's a big problem and another violation of international law and maybe even a sign that vladimir putin of the world you can get away with it. >> obvious
ukraine, and secretary of state john kerry is expected in the ukrainian capitol on tuesday. john few people think that the west will actually go to war over crimea, but it does now look at though another option is being discussed, that is hitting russia in the pocketbook. but economic responses take time, and time is something that kiev may not have. >> phil ittner reporting from kiev. phil, thank you. >>> ukraine's crimea region is a military strong hold for ukraine and russia. jonathan betz with more. >> certain now that russia may try to push out ukraine's military all together in crimea. the black sea fleet is based at the peninsula. it has 25,000 soldiers stationed there from russia. but last weekend president putin sent in 6,000 more. russia then seized airports in the capitol and western coastal town. it has always surrounded ukraine military bases in several cities. those bases have been cut off by ukraine's troops remain inside. also russia took over a ferry terminal on the eastern tip of crimea, about 12 miles from russia, and another way russia is likely to bring in more s
the secretary of state, accusing russia of meddling and intervening in the affairs of ukraine. we have phil in kiev, and how did this play in kiev? right now, it is close to 7:00 in the evening there. >> to get out into kiev, and certainly onto the streets of independence square here, i have to say -- i cannot think of a moment in time where a flashpoint situation has called upon the heads of state of two nations, and also their chief diplomat, all speaking about the same issue on the same day. we have seen the president of the united states, the president of russia, the secretary of state, and the russian foreign minister speaking all on one day, all talking about one issue, and i think it's important to make note of that. because it clearly shows how very important these two nations and here in ukraine, with these very important and very powerful nations all talking about the same thing. i find it absolutely extraordinary. >> phil in kiev, and these are the images, by the way, of russian troops that vladimir putin said earlier today said did not exist in ukraine. i want to play what he r
for grabs. >> yimcrimea is, was, and will an integral part of the state of ukraine. >> of course, the fact of the matter on the ground is that is not the truth. right now crimea belongs to the russians. i say that because the russians control every strategic point there. they control the naval facilities, they control the ports. and today, they took over two strategic defense areas, defense missile systems. it appears now they control just about everything. well, overnight, united states time, my crew and i flew down to crimea to get a look on the ground and we'll begin where we landed. we arrived at the airport midday. and everything seemed pretty normal. nobody bothering you, nobody asking questions, nobody staring you down in any strange way. the weather much better here than in the north. and then, over here at this gate that leads out of the airport, a man who professes to be a local from simferopol who is volunteering, with volunteer equipment, things that belong to himself, but one difference you might notice here, see the brand-new scotch tape on the fence post here holding up what
and the onrequesting crisis in ukraine, and there are major developments. the secretary of state, john kerry, was in kiev, ukraine, meeting with the government there and touring the site of last month's deadly pro it tests. a short time ago, he and president obama made clear their support for that new ukrainian government, contradicting the russian president, vladimir putin's claims that ukraine has no legitimate leaders. president obama dismissed that claim, adding that russian's invasion of crimea was a miscalculation. >> i actually think that this is not a sign of strength, but rather is a reflection that countries near russia have deep concerns and suspicions about this kind of meddling. and if anything, will push many countries further away from russia. there is the ability for ukraine to be a friend of the west's, and a friend of russia's. >> secretary of state john kerry just left kiev for talks in paris, was even more forcefully, said all of putin's claims are false. >> not a single piece of credible evidence supports any one of these claims. none. >> adding to the tensions in crimea
to abide by the terms of that agreement, fleeing kiev, and ultimately ukraine. the united states categorically rejects the notion that the new government of ukraine is a "government of victors." it is a government of the people and it is one that intends to shepherd the country toward democratic elections on may 25th - elections that would allow ukrainians who would prefer different leadership to have their views heard. and the united states will stand strongly and proudly with the people of ukraine as they chart out their own destiny, their own government, their own future. the bottom line is that, for all of the self-serving rhetoric we have heard from russian officials in recent days, there is nothing that justifies russian conduct. as i said in our last session, russia's actions speak much louder than its words. what is happening today is not a human rights protection mission and it is not a consensual intervention. what is happening today is a dangerous military intervention in ukraine. it is an act of aggression. it must stop. this is a choice for russia. diplomacy can serv
